Babies: 6 - 9 Months

Crawling

If your LO is crawling did you notice a change in their eating habits?

DD started crawling this week and I am now finding it impossible to feed her a bottle. She just won't sit still. Is she just excited about her new skill and will eat better when its less exciting??

  • Yep. My LO doesn't sit still for a bottle at all anymore. I let him drink it on the floor at his own pace.

    She finally crawled herself to sleep. Passed out in the middle of the floor. I sat next to her asked her if she wanted her bottle, she drank the whole thing and fell back asleep! And this is nap #2! Aside from having to baby proof everything in less then a day, this crawling isn't half bad!

  • DS has been a distracted nurser since about 4 months old. He still wakes 3 or 4 times a night to eat, and often those are the only good feedings he has. During the day he might be at the breast 5 minutes at a time, 10 if he's really hungry. It only got worse once he started crawling!

  • Same situation here.  Doesn't want to nurse for more than 5 minutes all morning.  I hand him off to DH at noon, he plays with the bottle or refuses it all day.  Then drinks 5-8 ounces right down at bedtime with DH (while exhausted).  He sleeps for a nice 3 hour chunck then nurses 3-5 times  over the next 8 hours.  Everyone tells me I am nuts to be letting an 8 month old nurse that much at night but if I don't we'd estimate his daily intake at about 10-12 ounces!  That's not going to work for a crawling, active kid.  We've been on this pattern for 2-3 months, since he started trying to scoot and crawl.
